I have been working on a special birthday prezzie for Marten (Rachies husband), he had a BIG birthday yesterday. What do you get a man that wants nothing, now that he has achieved his ultimate dream of becoming a dad?! This has been causing me a problem for ages, nothing seemed to fit the occasion, until I was at the Scrap show in Paris a few weeks ago. Ping!!! Inspiration, it was so obvious, I would make a special photo album for him.
So over the past few weeks Rachie has been bringing photo's from home into the office, so I could scan them and then rushing them back before Marten got home from work. (Wives are naughty!)
I have never made anything like this before, I saw something similar in Paris but was unable to take any photo's. The album sort of grew, as more photos were added.
I spent hours doodling on the papers, colouring the edges, selecting the photo's - a true labour of love.
Marten loved it!
I am not very good at making cards for men, they do not appreciate flowers and ribbons!! So his card was very simple, although I did manage a few bits of ribbon.
Hope you all had a great weekend, thank you for spreading the word about the "Out of the Blue" weekend - we started despatching orders today.
